Pan Am Southern at East Portal—A view back at winter.

It was back on January 12, 2014, when I made this view of Pan Am Southern’s symbol freight EDMO (East Deerfield Yard, Massachusetts to Mohawk Yard near Schenectady) in the Berkshire hills at East Portal.

To make these photos, I temporarily co-opted a mound of snow and ballast to gain added elevation for a better view of the bridge.

The famous Hoosac Tunnel is across the road behind me. Soon the train will enter its murky depths.

I’d followed the train on its ambling journey upgrade from East Deerfield, This is another age old tradition for me, dating back to the early 1980s.

Back in the day, the challenge would have been to stay with the train to Mechanicville, New York. “To the River!” As we’d declare. (The Hudson, that is).
